T.R. Johnson, Ph.D.

T. R. is an Associate Professor of English and the Director of the Writing Program. Dr. Johnson has over 5 years experience teaching and study of pedagogy. In particular, he is versed in service-learning pedagogy, having taught a myriad of service learning courses and leading faculty seminars. Previously, he has presented a workshop on SL syllabus design and in Fall 2009, he developed a workshop for faculty centered around reflection activities, specifically addressing the ways of using technology in classroom and beyond. This presentation included study of best practices in teaching student to write analytically and to write personal narratives and then to demonstrate how to meld these into methods of reflection. Dr. Johnson is currently working finishing his study with a selected group of undergraduate seniors who are Public Service Fellows (PFS). This created an opportunity for information-sharing and networking, and "[t]he ultimate goal was to discover what are the best features of the public-service experiences of these best public-service students in order to figure out how to sustain these potentials far into the future and also how to make them available to increasing numbers of students." The study will culminate in a 'podcast' that CPS may choose to make available on its website.
